CORTLAND — Nelson L. Salway, 65, of Cortland, passed at his residence Wednesday, March 31, 2021.

He was born Nov. 17, 1955, in Warren, the son of Nelson R. Salway and Jean Marshman Salway.

Nelson enjoyed riding his Harley, especially for the wind therapy. He also enjoyed working outdoors around his property and the time he spent with his granddaughters and dogs. Anyone who knew Nelson knew he was an avid prankster and that he was able to navigate his way around any kitchen as he loved to share his many homemade recipes.

He is survived by his wife of 28 years, Kathy L. Kearns Salway; and his children, Cheyenne (Tom Weeks) and Scott Thornton; as well as his two granddaughters, Alainna and Addison, whom he adored.

Nelson was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Linda.
